The lookbook is a live recorded presentation with people wearing 9 individual looks. It presents a series of recreated body gestures when wearing ‘denim’ garments. The project investigates how wearing gestures can function as a metaphor for creating alternative fashion dialogues and a language of signs in everyday contexts.

The outcome is a lookbook highlighting the collection as a series of garments/outfits that open an interactive form of wearing and layering meaning, recognizing body language to communicate and interact with denim objects.
